north of harming peace and stability. the north's new young leader, kim jong-un, has been threatening to attack the south and the u.s. on an almost daily basis. angered by tough new u.s.-led sanctions that followed the third nuclear test in the north. he's also denounced routine u.s./south korean military exercises which included two nuclear capable b-2 stealth bombers. south koreans have become used to the threats from across the border, but the shear volume and violence of the recent rhetoric has people on edge. i'm very afraid and scared, says this woman. though younger south koreans largely shrug it off, this one saying there is a slim chance war will break out. many in the south are now focused on the operations of a vast industrial zone, in calsong, just across the dmz, where 124 south korean companies directly employ more than 50,000 north korean workers. it's a big source of foreign currency for the north. it's weathered many ups and downs in relations and is seen as a barometer of the north's intentions beyond the rhetoric. today the north threatened to shut it do

. the country has put rocket units on standby, saying they are willing to fire in the south pacific. kim jong-un says the north is ready to settle accounts with the u.s. imperialists. the announcements came after the u.s. flew a pair of nuclear-capable stealth bombers over south korean air space. deployed from a base in missouri, they practiced dropping bombs on a south korean range, nearly 6,500 miles away. defense secretary chuck hagel says the pentagon has not taken the regime's threats lightly. >> is north korea more dangerous today? i think they're very provocative actions and belligerent tone has ratcheted up the danger. and we have to understand that reality. >> on tuesday, kim jong-un threatened to fire on guam, hawaii, and the u.s. mainland. and has recently put ground troops and artillery on standby. and pyongyang even released a propaganda video earlier this month showing the u.s. capitol and white house under attack. >>> the situation in syria grows worse by the day. mortar shells fell on the ca cafeteria at damascus university killing at least 15 students and wounding at least 20 mo

making process. obviously, there's a lot of speculation. people are wondering, did kim jong-un get the message that was delivered by china, by russia, and so many others, to dial back the rhetoric and all the talk of near war on the peninsula, missile strikes on the continental united states. did he hear that message? is that why we're seeing all of this? even some north korean experts say kim jong-un was painting himself into a corner with all of that. he was whipping up so much national fervor and getting people geared up to go to war that it could backfire on him. he could lose credibility or even worse, he can find himself in a position where he had to make good on some of those threats in order to maintain a standing in the eyes of his own people. there's little doubt, at this point, that over the course of the next hours and days, all eyes from washington to beijing, from here in seoul to moscow, are going to be on north korea and kim jong-un to try to see what he does say, to try to listen closely and find out what the next move of pyongyang will be. alison? >> okay, jim cla

of kim jong-un among sparked alarm, and china, their ally, urged restraint. >> this serves the common interests of all parties and also responsibilities. we hope that relevant parties will work together in pushing for a turnaround of a tense situation. >> the north korean war talk has especially unsettled people in the south, but some see it as a bluff. taking akorea is strong stance, but i do not think they will get anywhere with this behavior. i think they have to come to the negotiation table for talks. doubt northexperts korea has the capability to hit targets on the u.s. mainland or pacific territories, but u.s. bases in south korea are within range. >> good friday ceremonies in rom where held for the first time by pope francis. they were joining him for the way of the cross which will, commemorating the final hours of jesus between his sentencing and crucifixion. many of the prayers focused on the plight of christians in the middle east and expressed hopes of peace. at st. peter's basilica, pope francis reminded worshipers of the suffering of christ. he underscored the message w

up. victor, alison? >> jim, we saw the photographs just a few seconds ago of kim jong-un with four generals behind him and the map in the background talks about targets in the u.s. what is the likelihood that kim jong-un and his army could pull that off? >> in a word, zero. they cannot hit the u.s. mainland with what they have now. if they were to launch that missile that they put up to put a satellite in orbit, they'd have to leave it on the launch pad probably ten days as they fueled it up. they simply don't have the capability, they're too vulnerable, but they do have medium and long-range missiles with a range of about 1,300 miles the longest ones and that does put guam and japan within range, those missiles work and there are concerns over that, the concerns are over the more low level things they could do, the cyber attacks like we saw in the banks, the incident like the "cheonan" that was lost in 2010, those are things that south korea and the u.s. are keeping a close eye on tonight. >> jim clancy in seoul, south korea, for us, thank you. >>> we've got much more ahead this h

of north korean leader kim jong un's call to arms, chanting "death to the u.s. imperialists." kim said earlier the time had come to, quote, settle accounts with the u.s. in response to a u.s. show of force, b-2 bombers in exercises over south korea. kim has also ordered his missiles on stand by to strike the u.s., south korea, guam, even hawaii. experts doubt he has the ability to hit u.s. targets and think it would be pretty suicidal to try. they believe a full scale conflict is unlikely but do worry about a more localized provocation, perhaps around disputed waters in the yellow sea. there have been several clashes there in recent years, and when i visited the area friday, i found the south most vulnerable islands just ten miles from the north on a high state of alert. the big worry is that a local skirmish or miscalculation could quickly escalate, lester. >> ian williams in south korea for us this morning, thanks. >>> kristen welker is at the white house with reaction this morning from the obama administration. what are you hearing at this point from the white house? >> reporter: we

rhetoric, threatening to rain death and destruction on the u.s. and south korea, kim jong un seems to have taken a day off. perhaps the north korean leader ran out of things to say. north korea had warned saturday that the korean peninsula had entered what it called a state of war and threatened to shut down a border factory complex that's the last major symbol of interkorean cooperation. in fact, the peninsula has been in a technical state of war for 60 years. for all the rhetoric including a vow to launch a nuclear strike on the u.s., experts believe a full-sized conflict is extremely unlikely. but the growing tensions during which the north has renounced an armistice and cut lines across have raised fears here that a misjudgment between the sides could lead to a clash which could easily escalate. don't forget, also, that the u.s. has just under 30,000 troops stationed here. for its part, the white house said this weekend that the u.s. is taking the new threat seriously but also noted that pyongyang does have a history of bellicose rhetoric. richard? >> ian williams, thank you so much. n
